Cassandra



The next Cassandra in the series.  This one the inverse of the one you see below.  Both beautiful soft palettes.  The one below features the brown pearl in the center surrounded by platinum pearls with accents of light gold metallic.  This one has a center of platinum surrounded by the brown and a sand opal crystal.  Interestingly they are quite a bit different.




























The first has already been sent on it's way as a sample so I can't compare them side by side as I'd like to.  It could be several months before they live together again, I may just have to remake the one with the brown pearl centers since I love it so much.  It is an afternoon of beading if I'm really focused.  Next up  on the beading table however is the fourth version with bronze pearls and fucshia accents.



And here is what happens when you're not paying attention to the count...the bottom medallion is asymmetrical, which is not a bad thing but doesn't work out so well for making a sample which will be the same as the directions....so I made it into a pendant.  The red in the photo is much more as I'd really like to see it.  In reality it is more of a brown red, but I do think it is set off nicely with the gold.  I suspect I'll string a choker length necklace of pearls and crystals and keep this in my personal collection.


More bead play today!
